Color Coordination Made Easy

Coordinate your gown with your bridal party dresses and accessories, groomsmen vests and ties, invitations and favors, and all the finishing touches. We take one-stop shopping to the next level.

One of the easiest and most stylish ways to develop a wedding theme is with color. David's Bridal is uniquely positioned to offer exclusive color coordination for all your wedding details, from gown accents and accessories, bridesmaid fashions and formalwear, invitations and gifts, and so much more. A unified theme will help to create a fabulous wedding look, and photos that appear like they're straight out of your favorite bridal magazine.

Keep an open mind to the many possibilities for color schemes - this is one area that need not be strictly black and white (although that is an excellent choice for a wedding theme)! If you have one specific color in mind, it may be challenging to find the right match for all the elements you'd like to incorporate. The latest trend is to expand your palette to include light and dark values of the same hue, creating a beautiful monochromatic effect. Mix and match complementary colors (opposites) for a trendy, eclectic look, or combine harmonious hues (blue, blue-green, and green) to evoke an air of refined elegance. Your color choices are virtually endless. Check out our new Mood Board Gallery and our Color Center for more inspiration and ideas.

Is your heart set on a totally integrated color scheme? David's Bridal and Men's Wearhouse, our tux rental partner make it easy to pull together your whole wedding with our exclusive color-coordinated bridal party dresses and tuxedo accents. Take even more guesswork out of creating a perfect match with our coordinated invitations and exclusive ceremony collections. Find the perfect accents for your wedding theme: an array of personalized invitations, thank you notes, attendant's gifts, wedding day essentials, and so much more.

The best place to look for color scheme inspiration is to start with your bridesmaid dresses. David's Bridal Bridesmaid collection offers something for every individual style, in up to 42 colors, in sizes 2 to 26 (select styles size 2 to 30). Dresses feature clean lines and simply elegant designs that make it easy to coordinate your day with color and style. For bridal parties with a variety of shapes and sizes, why not pick your favorite color(s) and let each attendant choose the dress style that fits her best? Our newest designer collection, White by Vera Wang, offers a unique selection of bridesmaid styles in exclusive colors and styles.

Once you've found the perfect colors and styles for your bridesmaids, it's time to select the rest of your bridal party. Do you have a special young lady you'd like to include, but she's too young to be a bridesmaid and too old to be a flower girl? Let her feel all grown up in a Junior Bridesmaid dress (size 8-18) that complements your bridesmaids' style. Our flower girl collection also offers dresses in up to 42 color options. Customize any look with coordinating sashes and accessories.

Attire for the mothers is almost as important as the wedding gown itself. While style preferences and sizes may vary, there is always something at David's Bridal that will fit each mother's personal taste and look wonderful with your wedding ensemble. Our collection of Special Occasion dresses offer elegant options in sizes 4 to 24. Looking for Color Inspiration on how to coordinate your mom's dress with your bridal party? Look no further! And don't forget the youngest member of your bridal party. Specially created to coordinate with your gown or bridesmaid dresses, our flower girl dresses and accessories reflect the latest trends, in sizes from 12 to 24 months, 2T to 6 and 7 to 14.

Now for the men in your life... Spice up traditional tuxedos with colorful ties and vests for the groom, groomsmen, ushers, fathers, and ring bearer. Men's Wearhouse, our tux rental partner offers a broad selection of ties and vests available in a variety of styles that coordinate with David's Bridal colors. You'll also find an unrivaled selection of tuxedo styles and exclusive brands you won't find anywhere else. With Men's Wearhouse and David's Bridal, your entire wedding party will easily make the best-dressed list!

Last but not least, keep your color scheme in mind when selecting other essential items. Present a unified theme with attire, décor, flowers, wedding cake, favors, etc. Set the stage for your event by choosing invitations with an exclusive color font, ribbon or pattern. Everything does not have to be an exact match, but think about it this way: would you decorate your new home or dress for an important interview without carefully considering how the colors and styles look together? Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, so give it the attention it deserves.

While you are very excited about your engagement, you may also be worried about all you have to do. Every once in a while remember to take a step back, relax, and enjoy this special time. All this decision-making may seem like serious business, but you can also have lots of fun shopping and planning your fabulous, one-of-a-kind party. And then there's the honeymoon...
